School Travel Awards

Teacher Jonathan Whitewell entered the Year 1 residential trip which took place at FSC Malham Tarn in the Yorkshire Dales to win the award along with written pieces from the children about their experiences of the residential to the centre as well as his own commentary on what impact the trip had on them.

The celebratory ceremony, where the winners were revealed, took place on Friday 16th November in Kensington, London, hosted byBBC TV news anchor and Antiques Roadshow presenter Fiona Bruce. 

The School Travel Awards, organised by School Travel Organiser magazine, recognise how important it is to reward those in the education sector, especially those who excel in providing exciting and educational trips for Primary and Secondary schools.

The judging panel for the award consisted of Kim Somerville, chief executive of the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom, Gill Harvey, CEO of School Travel Forum, Peter Carne, OBE, Learning Away National Adviser, Rob Yandell, publisher of School Travel Organiser and Keeley Rodgers, editor of School Travel Organiser.

Editor of School Travel Organiser magazine, Keeley Rodgers said: “Without our readers voting, and our fantastic partners, none of this would be possible.” She continued, “The standard of entries and nominations this year has been incredibly high, which reflects the growing importance of learning outside the classroom and the school travel sector. There are so many amazing people out there from teachers organising brilliant school trips to those working in to provide fantastic learning experiences. The School Travel Awards is our way of giving something back by recognising those individuals and teams – and hopefully inspiring others along the way.”
